The Transformation Roadmap for Being Agile
For many years, Agile Transformation has emphasized a need to get IT projects done quicker, at less cost, and with better quality. Whereas these tenets still remain pertinent, Agile Transformation is now being more heavily pursued by business organizations where IT is simply a component to success versus a main ingredient. Moreover, companies are looking at establishing product- versus project-centric cultures to focus on making sure that maximized value is being delivered to their end customers versus simply getting a project completed on time and under budget. Metrics, such as NPS and increased profit, are now at the forefront of Agile initiatives rather than project velocity and backlog burn down.
This presentation is geared toward organizational business leaders and operational management who want to understand what is required and an action plan (i.e., roadmap) to have their business and/or functional organization embrace an Agile culture that optimizes processes as well as technology solutions — in essence, being Agile versus acting Agile.
